How the Eyes are Indicators of Health and Proper Personal Care


marieclaire.com
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but how healthy your eyes are tells a lot about you. And don't think that only blue, green or brown eyes are beautiful. Even simple black eyes can be a thing of beauty if you know how to care for them.

I think it's useless to say here that watching TV or gazing at the PC screen a long time can be harmful to your eyes. I mean, most times you can't but watch TV a long time or stare at the PC screen for long periods---unless you leave the city and live in the mountains.

So, given the urban living conditions today, how can you care for your eyes?

One, eat red and yellow fruits and vegetables. The bright red color is actually lycopene and is good for the eyes. The yellow or orange or yellow orange color is a flavonoid which is really an antioxidant that fights free radicals. Free radicals can weaken your eyes.

I love eating yellow bananas (don't laugh because there are red, blue and green bananas) and I heard that the black dots you see on the peel are really an indicator that they have more nutrition.

Anyway, if you lack luster and glow in the eyes, it may mean you have inner health problems, even serious ones, like liver or blood problems. The eyes are windows of the body and its internal systems. Doctors often look at them to see if they're healthy. Healthy eyes often mean good overall health. Christ himself gave a hint on this:

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light."
Thus, to get rid of sick-looking eyes, stay on tiptop health and shape.

But tired eyes are another story altogether. You may be healthy inside but the body will get tired sooner or later with stress and prolonged physical activity. Tired eyes due to stress is what we don't want. Because stress is not remedied with rest. You have to get rid of the source of stress to get rid of tired eyes due to stress.

Get it?

But there are ways to help minimize tired or stressed eyes aside from getting rid of stress. So, while weeding out stress (example through exercise and mental relaxation), you can apply effective first aid remedies to make your eyes look good and full of life. Often, physical attraction starts from the eyes. So if you want to appear attractive to the opposite gender (or get extra plus points to possibly get hired), start with your eyes.

You wouldn't want to meet someone romantically or meet the big boss of a company when applying for a job with your eyes all puffy, with dark spots or wrinkle lines at the sides. And you've got to have a solution for this instantly, like right on the spot. What would you do?

Well, you have to have a ready and effective eye conditioner that's handy and easily fits your bag or pocket. It's also advisable for men. NLighten Eye Gel works wonders for this purpose. It literally deflates puffy eyes and eye bags within seconds or minutes.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
